I was inspired by Dean Academic speech made today during the hosting session of assembly (28/4/2014). He started with scaring student. You are done with two third of semester and you are left with one third of semester. Timetable for end semester will out within short period of time (maximum 10 days from today).
Some student who listened might think it was simple strategies when he make speech but those common and simple strategies generally make mistake by everyone of us in daily life.
I could take note of his speech. Below are highlighted point that I could catch up.
· Sleep and
On top of tending to forget doing our scheduled task we disturb serious student at work. For instance when it is time for studying (at 8pm, generally observe as silence hour) students go room to room for gossiping to kill his or her boredom. To students who are genuinely want to study has no option to reject his gossip as Dean has pointed out all student are brought up in the cream of Bhutanese system. If you really want happy within yourself and want to see your friend happy, don’t go to gossip with serious student during silence hour (study hour at 8pm). If you go and gossip with serious student, you are making your friend unhappy as your friend think for sure is, it would better if you go.
In connection with happiness he talks about duration of sleep that we required. He mention three type of sleeps: Under sleep, Normal sleep and Over sleep. If we fall under the category of Under sleep and Over sleep we will have problem. Instead of feeling light you feel drowsy and pain of body. Hope you all have better experience of it. Now what is the solution for above problem? To get solution you have to read sub-topic toys/instrument as follow.
He used sensitive and unforgettable word like Toys/Instruments. Here Toys/Instrument represent laptop and things that are main factor for wasting time. There is only one weekend in a week but for us every week days are treated as weekend. Every day you watch movies and browsing social media for no purposes at late night. Here comes the problem by Under sleep. Some student prefer early to bed than watching movies or browsing social media but we never realize how much we sleep and here comes problem by Over sleep. Staying late night result in Under sleep on top of missing morning class that start at 8am. Over sleep is for sure to miss all classes of morning session.
I learn great lesson with his simple and effective speech.
P.S: Instead of going room to room for gossiping, make timer (6 hours) and go to bed. Walk up early when timer walks you up. It will make you happy within and your friend too.
And Dzongkha proverb says: ཕྱི་རུ་ཉལ་མ་ཤེས་རྟ་དང་འདྲ་།དྲོ་པ་ལོང་མ་ཤེས་ཕགཔ་དང་འདྲ་།
“It says one who go to bed at late night are same as horse and one who walk up late in the morning are as same as pig”.
